Now that the time for the ending of the existence of the Colwyn Bay Local Board (as such) is rapidly approaching-, it is incumbent upon all who value and are zealous tor the welfare of Denbighshire's most noted watering-place to consider who will most fittingly represent them on the the new District Council which is ere long to be elected. The Local Board has been blamed much, by many, and often, and sometimes it has well deserved the blame it has received, and at other times has even deserved to be blamed but has escaped free from all censure. However, after all this has been said, we cannot but recognise that the Local Board has done much for the good of their District, and that more of their failures to satisfy their townsmen arose from omissions to do better than from commissions of note- worthy offences, and that these omissions principally proceeded from what may be termed as dilatoriness, procrastination, and battledore-and-shuttlecock system of reference to and fro and back again between the Board and its Commitees. Few members of the Board are poor at business in their private capacities, but the Board has often (far too often) dearly loved delay. What is wanted in the new District Council is a body of practical men who will in the Council treat the District's true interests in a practical way, and do what is requisite without haste, but equally without delay. So far, there seems no reason why questions of party or creed should enter into the election, and it remains for those who may wish to introduce party strife to fully justify its its introduction. But, on the other hand, it is desirable that care should be taken not to choose representatives (should the election proceed upon non-party lines) who may have fantastical theories which would cause them to oppose (or delay) the speedy consideration of such matters as the much-needed revision of the Board's codes of bye-laws and of additions thereto, and the adoption of the Medical Officer of Health's recommendations on the ashpit question, and generally the effectual dealing with matters affecting sanitation. After all, the health question is the question for a progressing and progressive health- t, Z, resort like Colwyn Bay, and true sanita- tion is worth to the community any expenditure of time, trouble, and money, provided the money is wisely expended by practical men, no greater sum being spent than will pay for the required improve- ment, no more trouble being required of the householders than will produce the required effect, and no more time being spent in the process of improvement than the minimum requisite to fully do the work wanted to be done. It is, however, easy to talk about sanitation, but the central idea of sanitation is not yet recognised as widely as it should be. The central idea "of the modern science of sanitation," we are quoting now from the London 2! Daily News of the 15th inst., "is the "recognition of the fact that the health of "one family depends very much on the "health of another family. One man's "bad meat is another man's poison. The "castle cannot be wholesome, while the "village at its feet is unsound. We are "not now speaking of infection or con- "tagion in the ordinary sense of these "words. We are not thinking of the "positive disease which is caught from "positive disease. On that subject there "were always theories there was always "some attempt, more or less effective, at "putting the theories into practice. Our "present concern is with that vast and 41, "general contribution to disease which "comes from the merely insanitary con- "dition of places not openly marked by "pestilence. This is the condition with "which the sanitary science of modern "days sets itself to deal. To deal with it "is the special work of what we may fairly "call the new science of Sanitation." In fact, sanitation concerns itself with the provision of those conditions which tend to produce the highest state of health and vitality, and to destroy (and, so far as possible, annihilate) whatever tends to impair that vitality and health, be that impairment in even the smallest degree. We want, then, for the governing District Council of a health-resort whose natural advantages place it in the forefront of its competitors, men who understand what sanitation means, who know how to apply that knowledge, and who will enforce sanitation at all times, and regardless of who may be the owners of property in question. We want men with sense to think and with nerve to do (even when in office as the representatives of the rate- payers), and to get such men it behoves the people of Colwyn Bay, Colwyn, and Rhos-on-Sea, to awake to the importance of the coming contest, and by the good sense they display in the selection of can- didates, and in their proceedings at the ballot-box, to create such a progressive District Council that there may be avoided on the one hand needless expenditure of the ratepayers' hard-earned money, and on the other hand any possibility of reproach of their management as of a character "extremely conservative, not to say eighteen-hundred and fast asleep." A Z, great opportunity lies before the people of Colwyn Bay, let them use it aright

It was resolved that all parishes which do not either subscribe or collect for the move- ment, be asked to pay for their books. The following were asked to act as trainers:—St. Asaph Deanery (Vicar Henry Jones), Rhos Dean- ery (Rev. J. Thompson Jones, Towyn), Denbigh Deanery (Rev. D. Williams, Nantglyn).

Crump (Pinehurst), the Hon. Local Secretary. THE HOME INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION.—Those who remember the Marchioness of Stafford (now Duchess of Sutherland) as a much-admired visitor at Colwyn Bay some two or three summers ago, will read with interest the following extract from The Staffordshire Advertiser: The young Duchess of Sutherland, accompanied by the Duke, writes a correspondent of the British Weekly, has been yachting along the north and west coasts of Scotland during August. The object of her tour is to increase interest in the aims of the Home Industries Association, and especially to improve the quality of the work sent up to the sales in London and Inverness. Her Grace landed at most of the principal townships, and conferred with the spinners and weavers of the district. The place of meeting was generally the School or Church. It was interesting to see the Duchess, seated in the lateran, with her bag of patterns laid beside the precentor's Gaelic Psalm-book, while she explained to the gathering of weather-beaten old women the fads and fancies of the London world of fashion. The weavers and spinners were delighted with her Grace." THE REV. STEPHEN GLADSTONE.-The Liver- pool Daily Post (September 20th, 1894) says "The Rev Stephen Gladstone left the Rectory, Hawarden, yesterday, for Colwyn Bay, where he intends staying for some time to recruit his health."

THE CHURCH TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. The inaugural meeting of the adult section of the Church Temperance Society will be held on Thursday evening, October nth, when the Rev E. T. Davies will give a Welsh address. THE BOROUGH MEMBER ON THE TEMPERANCE QUESTION.—Speaking at the annual meeting of the South Wales Temperance Federation, held at Tredegar, on Thursday, September 13th, Mr Lloyd George, M.P., declared that the publican now, as an electioneering force, outweighed all the parsons, capitalists, and landlords in the kingdom-he for the time being dominated Eng- lish politics and this accounted for the reluctance with which even Liberal Governments approach projects for solving the liquor question. Mr Lloyd George maintained that, with Home Rule for Ireland and the abolition of the veto power of the House of Lords to face, a comprehensive and well-considered Bill on the temperance question could not be expected from the Imperial Parlia- ment within the limits of this generation. He thought that it was incumbent upon the temper- ance party in Wales, if they meant to secure legislation on this or any other kindred social question, to induce the Imperial Parliament to delegate its power to legislate on this and other questions which concerned themselves alone to some representative body in Wales-in other words, the solution was to be found in Home Rule all round. The advocacy of devolution seemed to him to be the most effective means for promoting the great Temperance cause. CONWAY LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY. At the Conway Literary and Debating Society's meeting on Tuesday evening, September 18th, at the Guild Hall, Conway, the President (Mr A. G. Kaye) in the chair, the following were declared duly nominated :—President (three candidates for one vacancy), Messrs T. B. Farrington and J. E. Conway-Jones, and the Vicar of Conway (Rev J. P. Lewis). Vice-Presidents (five candi- dates for two vacancies) Rev J. Harries, Councillor J. P. Griffiths, Rev Dr Llugwy Owen, and Messrs J. R. Furness and J. Roger Dawson. Hon. Treasurer Mr A. G. Rogers. Hon. Secretaries (four candidates for two vacancies) Messrs John Williams (Lancaster Square), John Williams (Bradford House), A. Petch, and Moses Parry. Committee (six vacancies): All the nominated candidates for President, Vice- Presidents, and Hon. Secretaries, together with Miss Mathews, Miss J. E. Jones (High Street), and Messrs W. G. Williams (Relieving Officer), Loyd Jones (Melbourne House), T. Hughes (Gweryl Lodge), J. C. Salmon, J. W. Post, and — Stephenson. The election was announced to take place next Tuesday evening, September 25th. Councillor Charles Drover was duly proposed and seconded for membership, and the ballotting was announced to be taken that day week. Sundry notices of motion were also given, and the proceedings ended shortly after half-past nine. CONWAY AND LLANDUDNO COUNTY COURT. LLANDUDNO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6TH.— Before His Honor Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd. FOUR SHILLING A MONTH. Owen Williams, grocer, Colwyn, sued Owen Davies, quarryman, Llysfaen, for £ 29, and the defendant was ordered to pay at the rate of 4s. a month. THE OWNERSHIP OF A PUPPY. Mr P. J. Webster, solictor, Conway, success- fully defended William Trevor, Conway, against a claim for one guinea, the value of a puppy detained by him, and alleged to be the property of Sergt.-Instructor Robert Wraight, for whom Mr W. D. Henderson, solicitor, Llandudno, ap- peared. Mr Webster then applied for the allow- ance of the costs of a witness, a shoemaker, who had lost his day by attending to the Court, but His Honor refused this application, and caused great laughter by saying "Let him stick to his last." REVISION COURT. On Wednesday afternoon, September 19th, Mr W. Baldwin Yates revising-barrister, sat at the Guild Hall, Conway, for the revision of the lists of Parliamentary county-voters for the parishes of Llangwstenin and Llangelynin, and Conway. Mr George Owen (Carnarvon) represented the Con- servatives, and Mr R. D. Williams appeared for the Liberals. Afterwards, the lists of Parliament- ary borough, burgess, and parochial voters for the several parishes and portions of parishes within the Borough of Conway, were gone through. Mr R. D. Williams was greatly hampered by the absence of his local agent, and by the failure to attend on the part of most of the Liberals whose votes were seriously contested. The Conservative objection to Mr John Hughes, High Street, was withdrawn, Mr Hughes being given half-a-crown for his attendance that afternoon, at some incon- venience, to defend his vote. John Ambrose Lloyd, Upper Gate Street, was objected to by the Conservatives, on account of the unsufficiencyof his qualification, and his Parliamentary vote was struck off, his burgess vote remaining. John Hughes, Vulcan, was objected to, by the Conser- vatives, because he had not been in possession the requisite time for Parliamentary purposes, and was allowed the burgess vote only, as were also (on various grounds) John Evans, 3 Lower Gate Street; Robert Thomas, High Street; and Thomas Thomas, Rose Hill Street. Several residing in Conway-in-Rhos, were similary struck off for Parliamentary purposes. Mr William Walker, postmaster, Conway, was allowed a Parliamentary vote, but not a burgess vote. CONWAY AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY'S ANNUAL MEETING. The Conway Auxiliary British and Foreign Bible Society's annual meeting was held, at the Market Hall, on Wednesday evening, September 19th. In the unavoidable absence of the chair- man (Supt. H. D. Williams, Police Station) through illness, County Councillor H. Owen (Snottyn), was unanimously elected to the chair. On the platform we saw the Rev J. R. Ellis (late Wesleyan Missionary in India), deputation from the Parent Society Rev. W. C. B. Turner (English Wes- leyan) Rev. D. Williams (Calvinistic Methodist) Rev. O. Evans (Welsh Wesleyan); and Councillor J. P. Griffiths (Local Hon. Sec.) After a hymn had been sung, and the Rev. W. C. B. Turner had read a chapter and had led in prayer, the Chairman, after stating the object of the meeting, said that though Wales had been greatly benefited through the Bible, there were many parts which had, as yet, not had the privi- lege of its possession and that though they in Wales had their Sunday Schools, he wished to see everybody turning all its lessons to them- selves. The Secretary having read the Treasurer's report, which showed that during the last year £ 19 19s. 9d. had been collected out of which £ I 19s. 6d. had been paid for work done, and £ i8 os. 3d. had been forwarded to the Parent Society, the Rev. Mr. Ellis said that he was proud of the honour conferred upon him as depu- tation from the Society. He was also glad that he need not enter into details as to the geography of India, as the ignorance with regard to that country had now passed away. But he had to state two very important facts as regarded that country, which everybody must know before they can enter into any question regarding India, and those were: -(i.) That India is a very large country and (2.) That India is not inhabited by one nation, but by a great many different nations, different as to religion, habits, and manners. He then went on to remark upon the various Mis- sionary Societies which were carrying on their Master's work in India. In Travancore (South India) the London Missionary Society was makmg grand progress that district had a great many cities with populations wholly made up of Christ- ians. Another nation of which the reverend gentleman spoke was the Telegus. The Bible ha,d been translated into 32 different languages. It was in the midst of the Telegus of South India, that the American Baptist Missionary Society was doing splendid work. That Society baptised 18,680 converts in one year. A little before last Christmas, 6500 were baptised in one day. There was between the above two districts another nation, which is composed of nineteen million people. More of this nation are Christians than of all the other nations together. Their language was very musical, and the speaker proceeded to recite the Lord's Prayer in it. He also said that the translating of the Bible was a very difficult work, and gave a literal translation of the verse, God so loved the world," etc., to illustrate that fact. He said that that was a great drawback to the Bible Society. He also stated that one of the greatest obstacles in the way of the Bible was the duplicity of the educated Hindoos. There are thousands of Hindoos who can speak and read English, and several have been raised to posts of of great honour, but these, although they de- nounce all native superstition and idolatry when in English circles and influence, as soon as they cross their own threshold, at once fall back to their old religion. Another feature was their great outward religiousness. They make every- thing religious, even going into and getting up from bed, bathing, lying and cheating. When cheating religiously, they used to buy a particular idol (which the speaker showed, and which, he was told, was of Birmingham make). Twelve hundred Bibles were sent last year to the educated classes of Southern India, who,believing the Word, had not the courage to proclaim their convictions at the cost of losing their social position amongst the natives. A bookseller told him that he had sold thirty-two copies of Thomas a Kempis's "Imitation of Christ" last year, and one copy of Fletcher's Manual of Devotion," to some of the leading men of the Hindoo religion. A Brahmin editor, in an editorial paragraph, speaking of the prospects of the Christian and Hindoo religions, had said that the Hindoo religion was on its deathbed; that several native Christians have started a crusade against it and that, if the educated classes, who believe in the new religion, would only awake to their work, they would give the old Hindoo religion its death-blow. Last year the Bible Society had four million Bibles put into circulation, out of which number Indian

The First Election of Parish…
The First Election of Parish Councils. On Saturday, September 15th, the Local Gov- ernment Board forwarded to the Overseers Of every rural parish in England and Wales having, according to the census of 1891, a population of 300 and upwards, to the County Councils of every administrative county of England and Wales (ex- cepting London), and to the Clerks of Guardians of Poor Law Unions in such counties, copies 0* the regulations drawn up for the election of Parish Councils.

FOR OUR BRETHREN IN "THE DARK CONTINENT." The Congo African Training Institute, Colwyn Bay, and its Branch Institutes in Africa, are doing a fair share of the great and glorious work of civilising The Dark Continent and winning the natives over from barbaric habits and idolatry to, Christianity, and the scheme of the Institute seems to be fulfilling the aims of its founder and secretary, the Rev W. Hughes, F.R.G.S., in adopting the most effective means for the regeneration of the African nations, and for avoiding all useless jeopardisation of white missionaries' lives in the African climates which have been found so deadly to Europeans, by training the most intelligent natives to become evangelists among their own nations, each student learning a trade so that he may demonstrate to his brethren that are in darkness the benefits of civilisation and the arts that flourish among peacefnl peoples. But all this warfare against African heathendom, carried on from the Congo Institute, needs the sinews of war," and the extension has caused a debt of -1-400, for the wiping off of which a grand bazaar is to be held in the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, next Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, September 25th and 26th, when it is sincerely to be hoped that generous patronage will be afforded to each and all of the various stallholders and the attractions announced. Not only is the cause a worthy one, but, if one may judge from the experience of former occasions, when the same personnel were responsible for the work. everyone patronising the bazaar will get good value for all money expended. SHOCKING SUICIDE AT RHOS. On Friday, September 14th, the inhabitants of the new rising seaside resort Rhos-on-Sea, Colwyn Bay, were startled upon hearing that Mr Arthur W. Lawson, The Grange, had committed suicide by hanging himself. It appears that he was out on the Thursday evening, and seemed in good spirits. He arose on the Friday morning, and went out for his customary walk, and on his failing to return, his wife went to look for him, and asked the postman whether he had seen him. He said that he had not, and on going to the coalhouse she discovered her husband hanging, and cut him down, he being then alive. Dr Montague Venables-Williams, Colwyn Bay, was called in, but pronounced life to be extinct. Police- constable Jones,, Colwyn Bay, happened to be in the vicinity at the time, and was there just as the deceased was expiring. Mr Lawson leaves a widow and three children. On Saturday, September 15th, Dr Caithness, Deputy-Coroner for Denbighshire, held an inquest, at the Grange, Rhos-on-Sea, on the body of Arthur W. Lawson, aged 41. Mr D. Allen, Colwyn Bay, was foreman of the jury. Evidence was given as to the facts above-mentioned, and also as to the deceased having received a writ, a fact which was supposed to have preyed upon his mind. The iury returned a verdict of Suicide whilst labouring under temporary insanity." Preparations were made to have the interment at Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, but it was the wish of the relatives to bury the remains at Liverpool, whither they were conveyed. A CHURCH ARMY VAN FOR ST. ASAPH DIOCESE. With the goodwill of the Bishop, one of the Church Army Mission and Colportage Vans has has just commenced work in the Diocese of St. Asaph. The Society has been enabled to place this Van in the field through the generosity of the Duke of Westminster, Lady Augusta Mostyn, and othor friends connected with the Diocese. Captain Morris,, who speaks both Welsh and English, is in charge of the Van, assisted by two earnest voung men, who are also bilinguists. The object of these officers is to win the careless by the preaching of the Gospel, and to counteract, by good literature, some of the objectionable publications which are so detrimental to the faith, and so likely to increase immorality and crime. Attractive spiritual reading, with a Church tone, is supplied at a very low rate. The Church Army have now eleven of these Vans at work in different Dioceses. Invitations for visits from the Van, which usually arrives on a Saturday or Monday, and leaves a week later, should be addressed to Rev L. W. Davies, Manafon Rectory, Berriew; or to Rev Carlile, hon. chief sec., headquarters, 130, Edgware Road, London, W. The success of these Vans has been most striking, no less than eight having been placed in the field during the last twelve months. The Van, which has already visited Llanrhos Parish, is much admired by all who have seen it. MR. JOHN ROBERTS AND THE COWLYD WATER SCHEME. In our report of last week's Local Board, with reference to Mr. Thomas Parry's proposal to have at Colwyn Bay a pnblic commemoration ot the opening of the Cowlyd water-scheme, Mr. John Roberts (Fern Bank) is reported to have 11 hoped that no such opening would take place until the scheme was completed. Perhaps it might be only half a scheme after all." To remove possible misapprensions, he Mr. John Roberts writes as follows, under date Sept. 18th, 1894 :The Cowlyd Water Scheme" being only half completed, that was my objection to having an opening ceremony meeting," when the Scheme itself was in the state it is. As to the Scheme when completed, in my opinion, no one could find fault with it, I hope. I have the greatest faith in the engineer and other officials and the joint-committee, and, no doubt, the whole of the Cowlyd Board are the cream of their respective authorities. When their great work shall be complete, the whole Board and officials shall be praised. MR. SCHOFIELD'S BENEFIT CONCERT. A grand benefit concert to Mr. F. W. Schofield and the members of the Town Band, was given, at the Public Hall, on Monday evening, Sept. 17th, and was well patronised by the public.

(Ascher), Mr. Davies song, Miss Burton (Rhyl) song, Death of Nelson," Mr. Llew. Jones song, London Bridge," Mr. R. LI.

Evans; march, "En Fete," the Band; finale, "God save the Queen. Mr Burwell was the accompanist, and all the artistes acquitted themselves most effeciently. MR ARTHUR PAYNE'S GRAND EVENING CONCERT. A grand evening concert was given at the Public Hall, on Tuesday evening, September 18th, under the patronage of thel Rev W. Venables- Williams, M.A. Oxon., the artisles being Madame Conway (soprano), Mr Leslie Harris (humorist), Mr Arthur Payne (violin), and Dr Roland Rogers' (pianoforte) The first part of the programme opened with a duo concert-ante, William Tell," (De Beriot and Osborne), Mr Payne and Dr Rogers. The remainder of the programme was as follows:—Song, "My dearest heart" (Sullivan), Madame Conway humorous musical sketch, Unmusical music" (Leslie Harris), Mr Leslie Harris, and, as the encore, "The baby on the shore" song, "Where the bee sucks" (Arnold) and "Good morrow, gossip Joan" (Anon), Madame Conway. Part second --Violin solo, Hegre Kati (Hubway), Mr Payne song, Banks of Lock Lomond (arranged by Lawson), Madame Conway; humorous musical sketch, "Jones's Jubilee" (Leslie Harris), Mr Leslie Harris, and as the encore, "What's the good of anything—eh nothing" violin solo, Andante and Finale from Mendelssohn's concerts, Mr Payne. The artistes cannot be praised too highly for their exquisite renderings of each and every item, the concert being a prolonged feast of high-class music much appreciated by the critical audience, each item being encored. There was a fair attendance, and it was abundantly evident that at the height of the season high-class concerts would be so appreciated and patronised as to raise Colwyn Bay in public estimation, and be an additional attraction to the increasingly many great musicians who spend their summer vacations at some of the peaceful seaside resorts of North Wales. Although on Tuesday night all the artistes received overwhelming ovations, we have no hesitation in saying that assuredly there was not one iota of applause more than was justly due to the merit displayed.
branches used one out of every six copies. Out of ^6000 spent on Bibles last year, the Madras Branch Society paid £ 4500, and the Parent Society ^1500, which showed how full of encouragement the work was. The chairman next called upon Rev O. Evans, who said that he was very glad to make his first appearance among Conway people, on the platform of a Bible Society meeting. The motto of the Bible Society was An open Bible, a Bible for everyone, and the Bible itself." He would like to see more use of the Bible in the present day, and less use of other literature, as the Bible is the best book, and the only book that could give to Hindoos or Englishmen that peace of mind which men are always hungering after. He had great pleasure in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr Ellis for coming there, and for his very instructive and entertaining speech. The Rev D. Williams, seconding the motion, said that he was always glad to be present at such meetings. He had (ever since he was a boy) always taken a deep interest in the Bible Society, which was an extensive institution, and one which was doing an immense amount of work in the world. As to the colporteurs, he said that they were doing splendid work, and gave an example of their untiring energy. The Chairman then put the motion to the meeting, and it was passed unanimously, and, after a vote of thanks to the Chairman, the meeting closed with prayer, offered bv the Rev Mr Ellis.
